I am curious to what fellow graphic designers do beyond graphic design. If you are anything like me, your creative brain does not switch off at the end of the day. It annoyingly sometimes wakes you up in the middle of the night with what seems like a fantastic idea (at the time anyway), I know my partner is not always so enthusiastic when I try and tell him about it at 2am in the morning.

I have my trustee notebook filled up with crazy ideas from the bizarre – a pogo stick bike (think I must have had a couple of glasses of wine when I thought of that one), and a fold up hoover with caterpillar wheels that could go down the stairs easily. I also have the more sensible ones – inkjet paper pre-sprayed with photomount/spraymount with a wax backing sheet so you don’t end up choking to death while mocking up visuals.I am just been waiting for an idea that requires a plastic prototype so I can try out polymorph (some plastic moulding material that you just warm up mould, leave to cool and it goes hard again), looks fun.And what about websites, do you get ideas for websites (graphic design blog included) all the time, and stories, oh and children’s characters and kitchen gadgets and…and…

Or maybe its just me?
